Choose menu “Security → Remote Management”, and then you can configure the Remote Management function in the screen as shown in Figure.
This feature allows you to manage your Router from a remote location via the Internet.
Web Management Port – Web browser access normally uses the standard HTTP service port 80.
This Tp-Link Router’s default remote management web port number is 80.
For greater security, you can change the remote management web port to a custom port by entering that number in the box provided.
Choose a number between 1 and 65534 but do not use the number of any common service port.
Remote Management IP Address – This is the current address you will use when accessing your Router from the Internet.
This function is disabled when the IP address is set to the default value of 0.0.0.0. To enable this function change 0.0.0.0 to a valid IP address.
If set to 255.255.255.255, then all the hosts can access the Router from internet.
1. To access the Tp-Link Router, you should type your Tp-Link Router’s WAN IP address into your browser’s address (in IE) or Location (in Navigator) box, followed by a colon and the custom port number.
For example, if your Tp-Link Router’s WAN address is 126.96.36.199, and the port number used is 8080, please enter http://188.8.131.52:8080 in your browser.
Later, you may be asked for the Router’s password.
After successfully entering the username and password, you will be able to access the Tp-Link Router’s web-based utility.
2. Be sure to change the Tp-Link Router’s default password to a very secure password.
